Maintain Your Teeth
A Healthy Mouth Is A Happy Mouth
Brushing, flossing, and rinsing are the standard way to take care of your dental hygiene, but they're only a few steps that can help you maintain that beautiful smile. A healthy mouth takes more than just brushing your teeth. You can think about improving your brushing technique, ditching the daily soda habit, and saying good-bye to other vices that affect your oral health.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
Bacteria lives in your mouth and is the cause of plaque, plaque can then lead to cavities and gingivitis, which can lead to periodontal disease. In order to keep your mouth clean and the bad bacteria down to a minimum you must practice good oral hygiene every day.
New patients receive a comprehensive examination which includes a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, blood pressure, and systemic disorders. A routine oral exam is performed on established patients to determine any changes in dental and health status since the previous visit.
Sealants are a proven way to help prevent cavities. Although sealants do not take the place of proper oral hygiene, they do prevent bacteria from getting into the deeper crevices in a tooth's biting surface and therefore keeping the tooth cavity-free.
Tooth scaling removes plaque, tartar and hard crusty calculus deposits, which are loaded with bacteria. After scaling the tooth roots may need to be planed to smooth the root surface so the soft tissue will re-attach itself to a smooth tooth surface.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually lead to the destruction of the support of your natural teeth. These diseases effect more than 80% of Americans by the age of 45.
Fluoride is an important part of healthy tooth development and will help prevent cavities. It is incapable of repairing already formed cavities, but it does assist in reversing low levels of tooth decay and helps in preventing new cavities from forming.
